Sorry in advance as this is just a major vent, I'm just feeling so down at the moment. I started with 25mg methotrexate, hydroxycholoroquine and folic acid in August but it was all making me feel really sick and with a one year old and a full time job I just couldn't take any more, so I stopped 3 weeks ago. I know it's stupid and I'm not helping myself but I'm so fed up of feeling sick, I have a massive needle phobia and I'm due to start the methotrexate injections next week and I just don't want to do it!! I was supposed to start them today but when I arrived to meet the rheumatology nurse at my local GPS, I was greeted by a care assistant as my nurse had to do the baby clinic instead. I had got myself psyched up for the possibility of needles and then felt so let down. And I told them that I have a really painful shoulder that naproxen isn't helping, and they have recommended to wear a sling all the time!! Not practical when I work full time, drive and have a baby.
I have just had enough and it's really getting me down 😩
